Just like the Kumite, or that Bruce Lee movie where the world's best are invited to throw down on an island, PL.com has sent out the word to the elite of the poker blogging world. Ten have replied to our call and tomorrow we will meet in the online arena to wage war.
Our opposition has been culled from the four corners of the earth, exotic locales rarely glimpsed by human eyes, but mostly from New York and California. Their names are known to the waiters at the cheapest of Vegas buffets and whispered in fear by the Gold Coast Pai-Gow dealers.
They claim to know the game, but we will put that claim to the test.
Representing PokerListings, and therefore all that is good and right in the world, are myself and our in-house master of strategery Dan Skolovy.
There will be riches beyond our wildest dreams in store for the winners and the crushing weight of failure for everyone else. It would not be an exaggeration to say the fate of all mankind dangles precariously in the balance.*
The carnage will take place on PokerStars each and every Saturday this month at 11 a.m. PDT, starting today. If you're online at Stars feel free to stop by and sweat the proceedings.
Over the course of the series we'll be recapping the events for your amusement and showing these so-called poker experts how the game was meant to be played.
Three preliminary events with $1,000 up for grabs in each will determine who advances to the Grand Final on the last Saturday of September. The finale will see a monstrous $2,500 divided among each of the six who make it.
Tune in to PokerListings.com and each of the blogs mentioned above to follow the action from everyone's perspective. And make sure to hang on; it's going to be a bumpy ride!

* Fate of mankind may not actually hang in the balance.
